Ajax Council has unanimously declared the Town of Ajax a sanctuary city. This designation gives undocumented and precarious status residents full access to local services, supporting their legal path to citizenship.

As the most diverse municipality in the Durham Region, Ajax joins cities across North America including Toronto and Montreal to affirm our commitment to all residents, regardless of circumstance.

As strong supporters of Canada’s tradition of multiculturalism, the Town of Ajax is proud to take another step toward the empowerment of all residents, fostering a culture of inclusion, and strengthening the fabric of Ajax’s diverse community.
